Judge just crushes the ball. He's gonna hit 30 at least.

It depends if he can keep his strikeouts down. Pitchers adjust to hitters as they seem them more.

Judge should have 5 hr's too. Got robbed in the last game, thought that was a clear HR that went over the fence and the fan just dropped it back onto the field.

Yankees about to reach Undertaker level of winning streaks!

Too early for ROY but for now, I'll revel in Judge "Dredd" breakout performance!

Montgomery did a great job of working out of trouble in the first and got a few key grounders into double plays. Just pitched to one too many batters yesterday. Nice addition to the rotation so far.

true, but we are not entitled to beat any particular team. We're only projected of winning anywhere from 81-84 games this year. Technically, we shouldn't treat any team as worse than us.

Only April fellas, long season, but I'm impressed by this win streak. Granted it's a soft as hell schedule for this month (outside of Boston), they're winning without Sanchez and Gregorius and Tanaka being streaky, as well as a shaky bullpen. Giradi is a damn good manager.

We knew coming into the season that this team is going to hit. The biggest X factor is the rotation. If those guys pitch the way they have playoffs look good for the future. Now the schedule may be weak, but we were going .500 against teams like these last year. Part of being a good team is beating up on bad ones, and that's what they're doing.

This is my favorite (only) Yankees forum :lol:

Judge (Bigfoot) looking very good at the plate. Patient, taking pitches well, not forcing it. Seems to have worked on pitch selection...very impressed.

Big Bird, FINALLY got comfortable again. While I do think Girardi did right by sitting him against a tough lefty just to keep the positive vibe going, I would not have sat a switch-hitter (Hicks) after going deep from both sides the day before.

Pineda 2 good starts in a row, Severino looked good last start, Montgomery a nice surprise (very poised), CC continuing to earn my respect and admiration, Tanaka doing well. What more can we ask from the starters for now?

All of it equals unbeaten at home to start the season...not too shabby.

Yankees keep playing like this they'll beat good teams as well. The starting pitching is the key. They just need to give 6 quality innings with the bullpen the bombers have.

Agree with everything but Tanaka doing well, wtf? Dude is single handedly costing my fantasy team. We need him to get it going because Pineda's bound to revert to the norm any day now
